Ah, the beach. Romantic, relaxing and beautiful. Listen to the waves, smell the salt air and feel the warm sun. Beach weddings can be one of two things: beautiful and serene, or tacky and cliche. After speaking with Katrina and Brian about their wedding theme and style, I knew their beach celebration was going to be a beautiful affair with lots of love and wonderful details. Katrina had chosen a color palette of soft blue, mint green, peach and a muted blush for her wedding…
The wedding was to be a weekend long event, and many guests were going to be traveling in from out of town so a lot of information was going to have to be conveyed in the invitation package. I set to work creating two different ways to present this information; the first way being a classic pocket folder and the second, my favorite for presenting a lot of info, the book invitation. Katrina and Brian chose to go the book route, and here’s what the final product looked like!
I love putting little phrases on some of the pages that coordinate with the theme or style. I thought this one opposite the invitation fit this couple perfectly.
Katrina and Brian were getting married at the beach, however their reception was to take place at a winery in the Malibu hills. On the first page of the invitation book, I put the phrase “A weekend of wine, love and sunshine”, which I thought fit the theme of the weekend perfectly!
Katrina’s family has a beautiful old boathouse that a second reception would be taking place at. This information also needed to be included in the book so on that particular page we drew a custom pen and ink of the boathouse which turned out beautifully!
One of my favorite pieces to design was the rehearsal beach day invitation. Instead of a typical rehearsal dinner, Katrina and Brian opted for a fun and relaxing beach day with their wedding party and family. This invitation was inspired by vintage surf posters and I love the end result!
Katrina and Brian’s wedding was featured in the Summer issue of Inside Weddings. It was a beautiful celebration filled with love, friends and family!
